decisions above the law and free he from judicial review until the parliament is ele surprising. and the president called president morsi to thank him for effort and reaffirm the close partnership between the united states and egypt. last night the state department issued a statement expressing reservations about what he's doing and made clear in their view the actions he's taking conflict with the idea that fueled the arab spring a year ago. the state department says one of the aspirations of the revolution was to ensure that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution, and the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects fundamental freedoms and rule of law consistent with egypt's international commitments. and el baradei is more blunt and twitter, morsi usurped all parents and' pointed himself egypt's new garo, a major blow that could have dire consequences. only a little more than five months since morsi became egypt's first democratically elected presiden

some kind of tax increase for the wealthiest americans? >> well, there's a couple of el elements at play. one thing is that none of this will be determined public, right? if the president and john boehner were able to get that room and hammer out a deal and just sign it maybe they can get something done. each has a lot of factions to get done. john boehner is in an interesting position given some members of his republican caucus have lost their seats and they're looking at a lame duck. so some of the things you're hearing from capitol hill now are figure out a quick fix, a patch for the end of the year, and then really sit down at the table and try to negotiate on those numbers. that $250,000 number, that's exactly the point. that could definitely slide. and that's an area where you think the white house is probably a little bit more willing to negotiate. >> what do you think ultimately this is going to come down to, perry? is it going to be who's going to blink first? >> yes. it will come down to who's going to blink first. i don't think the president is going to blink on his in
